Love's Labour's Lost
"So sweet a kiss the golden sun gives not" -King Ferdinand
A splendid satire, with some of Shakespeare's best early poetry, masterly scences, and excellant characterizations. The play tells how the King of Navarre and three of his lords vow to spend three years in study and not see any women. But when the Princess of France arrives on a diplomatic mission with her three ladies, the men fall in love with them. When the news comes of the death of the King of France, the ladies depart, refusing to marry until their suitors undergo a year's probation.
